One of the intriguing matchups this weekend has to be between Cowboys offensive coordinator Jason Garrett and Redskins defensive coordinator Gregg Williams. Garrett has been one of the most-aggressive play callers in the NFL, especially on first down. The Cowboys lead the league with an average of 6.84 yards on first down, which allows Garrett to be even more aggressive in manageable second and third-down situations.

QB Tony Romo continues to play at a high level and has actually gotten better since signing his new six-year, $67 million dollar deal during the bye week in late October. Romo will place a lot of pressure on the Redskins' defense due his ability to make all throws in the passing game, his instincts in the pocket and mobility to elude rushers, while keeping his eyes downfield. Plus he does a good job of using his legs in open space to move the chains. The Redskins front four, led by RDE Andre Carter and LDE Phillip Daniels, must be disciplined in their rush-lane integrity, while not allowing Romo to escape outside containment, where he is extremely dangerous at putting pressure on the backend.
